Customer Questions & Answers

does it come with a spigit?

Asked by: McWeth
It comes with a short hose and an on-off valve which you could put on the barrel or the end of the hose.

Does the "Diverter Kit" work? Looks like a lot of water will still go through the middle hole of the Diverter.

The instructions don't mention how the water normally flows through the downspout.
Asked by: JE66213
I was a bit apprehensive, but it works well. I was surprised how much rain collects in the barrel.

Is the area where you connect the hose brass or plastic?

Asked by: Sheri
It is plastic, and after six months, the connection is leaking. Tightening doesn't work, and I think the problem is in the end of the small hose that comes with the unit. It is some kind of yellow metal, I don't think it is brass. I think it is cracked, but I can't find out until the barrel is empty. Unfortunately I am losing precious Southern California rainwater.

Is the top of the rain barrel removeable for access to interior? Can we view the manual?

Asked by: Timothy
The top is not able to be removed, there is no access to the interior other then the hole you make for the diverter tube and the threaded drain at the base. I was hoping the top would be able to be taken off to be cleaned or in case of debris but have not had an issue yet

50 Gal. Sandstone Water Urn Flat-Back Rain Barrel with Integrated Planter and Diverter Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 196.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from we bought 5 we bought 5 of these and I cut a hole in the top with my drill and hole saw attachment then used a drain cover for the top it fit perfectly I also have a y diverter so I can control how much water might go to the rain barrel and some still go out I use a quick connect to just drain the water in spots in the yard that need some water on the grass, super easy I might get a soaker hose later to let it go to the flowerbeds instead I'll try to get some pictures later

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and decorative water barrel! Love this new addition to our home. Very easy to install with the included instructions. Performs exactly as described and now I have healthy water for my plants. The flat back of the urn allows it to fit nicely against the house too! I love the fact that the top of the urn is designed for plants also. I opted for a nice succulent dish for the top to add some color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good, set up not great The barrel looks good, is light to carry. The set up process isn't great. The issue is the drain diverter. It doesn't fit well. Also, not that you have to drill a hole in the barrel to insert the drain tube. You'll need a special drill bit for that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I thought it was...... One couldn't tell from the online photo that this particular barrel doesn't have a screened intake for the water to flow into from the downspout, and the description was inadequate. It turns out that you have to drill a hole into your downspout and then attach a tube from the downspout and into the side of the barrel. How much water can that collect??? I think this is an idiotic design as so much water will bypass that little tube and continue down the spout. Both barrels were returned to my local store 2 or three weeks ago. (I better make sure I received a credit for this return!)

It took a while to get rain here in southern California, but now that it is full it works well. However, with our last heavy rains the hose attachment at the bottom is leaking. We have tightened it, but it still leaks quite a bit. Unfortunately, until the barrel is empty we can't replace it. I can't find the receipt, so I guess the hose assembly can't be replaced by the company. I am disappointed about that and also losing our precious rain water. Additionally, as some people have pointed out, the flat back side does bow out when full. That isn't a critical concern for us however because it sits on a patio and not against a wall. Just hope it doesn't burst.

Fortunately the product is heavy plastic and attaching an air compressor to the drain hole popped the dent out without damaging the barrel. (If an air compressor isn't available, water from the garden hose will do the same thing.) Otherwise, the barrel looks terra cotta-ish and has the advantage of being light weight and easy to move. Installation is straight forward and the instructions are clear. The built-in planter on top helps the barrel blend into the garden. Now we just need an end to California's drought.

I think it will be easy to install, although I bought a different installation kit. I love that it has a planter on top. Only reason I deducted a star: the lid is not removable for cleaning. This will be an issue in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice planter/rain barrel Bought two but one was missing the diverter. Called HD .. No problem vendor will ship one out to me. Love doing business with this store. The rain barrels are great and real easy to setup. I really like the flat surface back. Doesn't take too much room.
